About our Presenter - Laura Dowling

As creative director for flowers and décor, Dowling managed White House floral design for thousands of official and private events, including state dinners, parties, receptions and large-scale installations, such as the Fourth of July, Halloween and the iconic White House Christmas. Her lush and lively floral creations also graced the White House state rooms, East and West Wing offices, Camp David and the Presidential private residence.

A native of Chehalis, Wash., Dowling received an Associate of Arts degree from Centralia College, a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Washington in Seattle. Prior to her White House assignment, Dowling was senior manager of Strategic Communications at The Nature Conservancy.

Dowling is an annual presenter at the Philadelphia Flower Show, the nation’s oldest and largest flower expo, as well as a regular speaker at national, regional and local horticultural associations, garden clubs and museums. Her flower designs have been featured in design magazines and on Home and Garden Television (HGTV). Her latest book, “Bouquets,” debuts in February of 2020 and features “how-to” tutorials.
